In Kenya, thousands of children aren’t getting the food they need to grow up strong and healthy.

Mothers provide for their families as part of their daily household duties. Putting food on the table has always been tough here. But the climate crisis and unpredictable weather are making it impossible for many.

Families here rely on raising and selling their livestock and poultry for money to buy groceries at the market. But the lack of pasture to graze on means their animals are dying.

Without a source of income, how can you feed your children?

Who are Action Against Hunger?

Life-threatening hunger is predictable, preventable and treatable, so a world without it is possible.

We tackle it where it hits and stop it. Whenever and wherever people need our help.

More than that, we work to prevent it in the first place by leading research that will create a world free from hunger. Forever.

How do we do this?

  • We train parents and healthcare workers to spot the first signs of malnutrition.
  • We deliver life-saving care to people who need it.
  • We lead research to drive forward understanding of how to predict, prevent and treat life-threatening hunger.

Why your support matters

  • provide clean water, good hygiene and health services
  • train more community health workers to treat malnourished children
  • inform more families about how to stay healthy and prevent more children from dying
